"I have no hesitation in recommending Building Projects Group to prospective clients. We are extremely impressed with the professional manner in which the Macmillan project was undertaken."

The challenge

Blythe House Hospice provides holistic care and support for anyone in the High Peak region living with serious life-threatening illnesses. Commissioned by Macmillan Cancer Relief, we were brought on board to build a drop-in centre at the hospice. But this seemingly simple project needed a wide scope of work. An existing smoking shelter and storeroom needed converting into a modern, welcoming extension, without disturbing patients and staff at the hospice.

The solution

With extensive experience working in live environments - specifically high-care ones - Building Projects Group was the perfect choice for the project. We constructed the new extension and fit-out with great care and detail. Beautiful fitted furniture and engineered oak flooring gave it a sense of character. Our scope of work also included external landscaping, turning it into a tranquil place for those who need it.

The benefits

The project was completed on schedule, within budget, and to the client’s absolute satisfaction. Blythe House now has a Macmillan Cancer Care Information Centre providing a unique drop-in service for anyone affected by cancer in the area, with access to high-quality information and empathic support. Blythe House was so impressed with the standards and execution of the project that they invited us back to work on a further extension project.
